17 Feb 2015 October 6, 2012 – Sun Sets on Our Beach Trips in Newport, Oregon by athena | posted in: Coast, Oregon | 0 The Sun is setting on our adventures in Newport, Oregon. We take one last trip to the beach, this time at the state park under the Yaquina Bay Bridge. This blog is a Dune Blog Dedicated to the Sparks Family who love the Oregon Dunes. We descended a very long hill, crossed a big dune, and ended up on a cool, but less than flat beach. Holly and Sarah take a quick run across the dunes Fortunately, they did not stay too gone, as we want to walk out on the jetty. It is a long walk to the jetty From the jetty, we find the wind and the evening, are causing all the boats to migrate from the open water to the harbor. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric division of the government has acquired for themselves a floating sky scraper, that they use primarily to block the entrance to the harbor. Secondarily they use it an an office where the officer on duty reads the bar conditions to you over the ship to shore radio. The persons on duty sounds like they have difficulty with reading. We would too, if we were bouncing 6 to 12 feet in the air every few seconds. Fortunately they also have a computer on board that broadcast the conditions on a secondary channel. The sweet female voice does not have any difficulty reading to us, as female solid state computers can bounce while Reading and not get distracted. They Jetty is Long, and right now, NOAA is setting out at the end. I wonder if NOAA is Armed? Time to walk back tot he car. The beach is cold and windy. I look back, and notice NOAA has pulled their boat into the jetty for the night. Our camp site is feeling rather cramped. Why haven’t all these people gone south yet? Well, we have decided it is time for us to leave, and we are going North! Our camp site is feeling rather cramped. Why haven’t all these people gone south yet? Well, we have decided it is time for us to leave, and we are going North! Athena got no sleep last night, so I get the privilege of driving. We ran into family that has tried this Coconut oil for a Parkinson’s symptom relief. They have met enough success where the family member was able to better control shaking, and even reduce the medications that are causing his symptoms of dementia as well. For those that are looking for healthier ways to control these medical symptoms, this product might be worth investigating. We hear 1 to 2 tablespoons per day is sufficient. My disdain for coconut, will probably keep me way from eating this direct, but as cooking oil substitute, it might have value. – Just some food for thought.
